(alan rose, don helms)

One day the train was passing, I caught it comin' by
To look this old world over, under god's blue sky
My darlin' stood there weepin' as I was lookin' back
I kissed my baby cryin' in the smoke along the track

Chorus:
Bye, bye, so long, there's something down the track
It's callin' me
Bye, bye, so long, I guess that's just the way
I'll always be
Now when I get this feelin'
Don't try to hold me back
I'll only leave you cryin'
In the smoke along the track

I like to keep on goin', it helps me when I'm blue
I get the urge to travel, that's all I want to do
I know I just can't settle down because I like to roam
And when I hear that whistle blow I gotta move along

Chorus:
Bye, bye, so long, there's something down the track
It's callin' me
Bye, bye, so long, I guess that's just the way
I'll always be
Now when I get this feelin'
Don't try to hold me back
I'll only leave you cryin'
In the smoke along the track

I know my baby loves me, I love my baby too
But she don't understand me when I'm feelin' blue
And when I hear that whistle blow I hurry home to pack
And kiss my baby cryin' in the smoke along the track

Chorus:
Bye, bye, so long, there's something down the track
It's callin' me
Bye, bye, so long, I guess that's just the way
I'll always be
Now when I get this feelin'
Don't try to hold me back
I'll only leave you cryin'
In the smoke along the track
